27 years old, USCF rating 1726. Personal best around 2100 blitz on ICC and Playchess. Around 1800 on FICS (handle: dumbgai). Inactive in OTB competition since 2011.

Beaten a handful of IMs online (mostly through flagging).

If anything I write on these pages offends you, feel free to hand me a beating on FICS.

My opening repertoire: 1. e4 as white, 1. e4 e5 and 1. d4 d5 as black.

Favorite players: Kramnik, Morozevich, Hou Yifan, Wei Yi, and of course Carlsen. Least favorite: anyone who acts like a classless jerk, meaning Topalov, Mamedyarov, and Nakamura. Also, Leko, who really should be a checkers (or tic-tac-toe) player.

dumbgai: <If I was Caruana, I wouldn't participate in the Grand Prix cycle at all. What's the point of shedding rating points in a shambolically run cycle of FIDE tournaments, played in questionable venues for a lower prize fund when he can play in exclusive top tournaments with high ...

dumbgai: The appropriate thing to do if your opponent REALLY refuses to resign is to under-promote 4 knights. I don't mind when my opponents drag games out, it just lets me enjoy my winning position for longer.

dumbgai: White didn't appear to get sufficient compensation for the pawn sacrifice after 23. d4. After the queens are exchanged, black is still a pawn up and can seemingly make a draw whenever she wants. 37. b3! is a key move, trapping the black rook and allowing the white bishop to go to ...

dumbgai: The fact that these issues are even discussed says enough about the country. In any civilized place in the world, women are not jailed for adultery.

dumbgai: A real blunderfest. At first white is up a pawn, then loses it and ends up down a piece for two pawns in the endgame, then ends up winning anyways.

dumbgai: Humpy might want to start avoiding rook endgames when facing Hou: Koneru vs Yifan Hou, 2011 Yifan Hou vs Koneru, 2013 Yifan Hou vs Koneru, 2011 Yifan Hou vs Koneru, 2008

dumbgai: <I can't believe the stupid chess establishment never gave JP a crack at the world championship.> That's silly. You don't just hand someone a world championship match, they have to qualify (well, I guess the case of Kramnik was debatable).
   Aug-14-14 Chess Olympiad (2014) (replies)
dumbgai: Every Olympiad, there seems to be a big tie near the top and the silver and bronze medals are determined by tiebreaks. While this might seem a bit unfair, it also indicates that the strong teams are pretty evenly matched, which makes the entire competition exciting to follow.
